On tap at Taphouse 15, bright grapefruit-peeled orange zesting and ancillary mango-guava-pineapple tropicalia pick up floral-perfumed spicing, mild grassy herbage and brisk pine tones above honeyed pale malting of lively hazy yellowed West Coast IPA.
On tap at Ambulance, supposedly “enigmatic” soft-toned dry body retains juicier citrus bittering and danker pine resin than usual IPA’s – but not as dramatically as advertised. Zesty yellow grapefruit and orange pith bittering contrasted by less profound lemon-candied peach, tangerine and pineapple tang.
On tap at Andy’s Corner Bar, creamily lactose milk-sugared vanilla sweetness provides sturdy foundation for grapefruit-peeled orange rind bittering, ancillary mango-tangerine-orange tang, resinous pine dankness and spicy floral dash of NEIPA/Milkshake-inspired medium body.
On tap at Ambulance, lemon-fizzed sour cherry pucker sustains sharpness as mild lime-salted acidity and vinous oak tannins prop up sour edge of dryer than expected Flemish red ale.
On tap at Draught Industries, boldly complex (10.5% ABV) Imperial IPA resonates with moderately embittered lemony orange-peeled grapefruit pith zesting bursting forth ahead of candied pineapple tartness, peachy nectar perk and mild mango-guava-tangerine conflux. Despite boozy alcohol percentage, tropical fruit juicing, dank piney hop oiling and delicate floral sweetness maintain impeccable balance above honey-spiced crystal malts.
On tap at Ambulance, fine hop-forward golden hazed IPA drapes floral-bound yellow grapefruit tang and zesty orange rind bittering across dank pine resin and mild juniper pungency. Juicy citrus fruiting gains ancillary mango-pineapple-peach illusions sweetened by spiced pale malts.
